B Is For Broken Hearts

Day 2 of the A-Z Challenge:
I had WAY too much fun with this one...

B Is For Broken Hearts

"Oh, I wouldn't mind, Hazel Grace. It would be a privilege to have my heart broken by you."
--Augustus Waters, From The Fault In Our Stars
(Can you even read that quote without bursting into tears? If so, then you haven't read the book, and you are missing out.)

"It shattered something inside me that hadn't been broken before."
--Ruby Oliver, The Boyfriend List

"Have you fallen in love with the wrong person yet?"
Jace said, "Unfortunately, Lady of the Haven, my one true love remains myself."
"At least," she said, "you don't have to worry about rejection Jace Wayland."
"Not necessarily. I turn myself down occasionally, just to keep it interesting.
--Cassandra Clare, City of Bones

"I don't want to be a man," said Jace. "I want to be an angst-ridden teenager who can't confront his own inner demons and takes it out verbally on other people instead."
"Well," said Luke, "you're doing a fantastic job."
--Cassandra Clare, City of Ashes.

"The boy never cried again, and he never forgot what he'd learned: that to love is to destroy, and that to be loved is to be the one destroyed."
--Cassandra Clare, City of Bones

'He does something to me, that boy.Every time. It's his only detriment. He steps on my heart. He makes me cry."
--From The Book Thief

"Theoretically, Blue Sargent was probably going to kill one of these boys."
--The Dream Thieves, Maggie Steifvater (Best first line of a book EVER)

Logan: "I thought our story was Epic, you know. You and me. Spanning years and continents. Lives ruined, bloodshed. Epic."
Veronica: You really think a relationship should be that hard?
Logan: No one writes songs about the ones that come easy.
--Veronica Mars

And of course, the epic heartbreak that is 

What are your favorite heartbroken moments?


  1. I've read all those books but The Boyfriend List and I'm definitely adding it to my TBR.
    I've never watched Chuck either but listening to that, I can't help but hear Flynn Rider! :)

    1. Chuck is one of my favorite shows ever. You should give it a try.

  2. I just saw American Hustle and loved the way Jennifer Lawrence's character got her heart broken and found a way to mend it so quickly. I really enjoyed this post.

  3. I think this is my favourite post so far on the tour.
    Thank you
